Timing is everything! Skies will clear during the evening and overnight hours allowing for temperatures to fall to the 50s. Stay up late for what may turn into an awesome meteor shower spectacular! Peak time should occur between 2 and 4 a.m. Look to the north, and try to get away from the bright city lights.

Look for abundant sunshine tomorrow as afternoon temperatures jump to the 70s. Sunday will be simply stunning with highs in the lower to middle 80s. A few extra clouds Memorial Day won’t cause any problems. Highs will be in the 80s with a bit more humidity.
